Its a safe pick, but I would put higher odds on a few others


Hauser, obviously, though he will have the handicap of lower counting stats than some of the others.

Aamir Simms gets a little bit better every year. Not explosive, but I would not count him out. He was a 40% 3P shooter last season.

Jalen Johnson is going to get every opportunity in the Duke offense which is designed to put the ball in his hands and get players like him 20 PPG.

And for a sleeper pick, DJ Funderburk is a lunkhead but he just seems to have a nose for the ball and basket. He might have higher odds of being suspended or dismissed from the team than becoming ACC POY but both are legitimate outcomes.

I would have mentioned David Johnson but he needs to show up with a real 3-pt shot. If he does, then add him to the list.

And I think Huff would be a fine sleeper pick too. If he asserts himself on offense he could be the best player in the ACC.
